Our Planed All Round Cut-To-Size Sapele is a widely used and popular redwood timber, similar to mahogany. This hardwood product features a deep, rich finish suited to furniture projects, conservatories and much more. Sapele timber is characterised by its heavy strength and durability, interlocked grain and natural lustre. The versatile wood also benefits from a distinctive red-brown colour that darkens as it matures and ages.
Our Cut-To-Size Sapele can require a little more expertise and care when working with machines, however, it nails, screws and glues effectively and finishes beautifully.
Name: Entandrophragma cylindricum
